Texas Strong Relief Concert
Organizations from across Central Texas will partner together to support the Texas Strong Relief Concert, with 100 percent of the profits from ticket sales and donations benefiting the Texas Farmer Winter Storm Relief fund.
Austin-based artists Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis will headline the concert, performing along with Jackie Venson, Ray Prim, Sir Woman, and Rochelle and the Sidewinders. All music performances will take place outdoors.
Partnering organizations include Dreamland, Richard’s Rainwater, Deep Eddy Vodka, Central Texas Food Bank, Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, Well Aware, Blue Norther Live, and Urban American Farmer.
The Texas Farmer Winter Storm Relief fund was created by a coalition of farm organizations from across Texas in response to the crippling winter storm Texas experienced over the last week that not only dealt a serious blow to the state’s water and energy infrastructure, but also had a terrible impact on small, sustainable family farmers and ranchers throughout Texas who provide the majority our state’s agricultural resources. The fund will provide relief for small and medium-sized farms across Texas, focusing on those using sustainable and organic methods, giving priority to farmers of color. Funds will also support future disaster relief work and ongoing climate adaptation for farmers.
